      Planet Janet Rules   07/07/2015

      General Rules for Planet Janet Welcome to Planet Janet! The main objective of this board is to express your love for Janet, your opinions, and to interact with an important segment of the Janet fandom.  To enjoy your experience here, below are general rules and guidelines to make your experience here be successful: The N Word Please be aware that the N word is going to be filtered on this forum. Most importantly, this word is not acceptable on this forum in any form; therefore, if it is used again by ANY member on here, it will result in an immediate and permanent ban. Consider this the first, only, and last warning regarding this. Music Download | Copyright Infringement Illegal download links to music from any artist are not permissible to be posted on this forum at any time. If you have posted an illegal download link, you must take it down immediately. Failure to remove the links, and/or subsequent, repeated offenses will result in disciplinary action up to and including a permanent ban from the forum. Fan Threads of Other Artists Generally, we like to keep threads and/or topics about other artists within an Official Artist Thread.  This helps to eliminate clutter and redundancy throughout the forum and allow a one-stop shop to view comments on that particular artist not pertaining to Janet.  If there is HUGE news related to an artist and generates a lot of discussion, it is okay to have a standalone thread on that topic outside of the Official Thread. A good debate is OKAY in the Official Threads of other artists.  Official Threads are not complete sanctuaries of devotion of that particular artist; however, there is a need to be civil with other members.  Please refrain from personal attacks and arguments that devolve into personal attacks. Additionally, do NOT use Janet as means to defend an artist.  This forum is made in her honor, and putting her down to boast your particular artist is prohibited. Exercise good judgment and common sense.  If not, then the moderating team will exercise disciplinary action depending on the egregiousness of the action.  Please utilize this announcement as a first warning. Personal Attacks

      Each member has a warning percentage - most of them are at zero right now but a few have been warned before. Each warning is worth 10%, and once it gets to 100% the member is automatically banned from the forum. 

      Each time a member gets into an argument with another member that includes personal attacks, if it is reported or viewed by a member of the moderating team, each participant in the personal attack will get an increase in their warning percentage.  They will be notified via PM, and, prior to posting again, will receive a receipt acknowledging that warning before they can post again. The Moderating Team will never divulge a member's warn percentages on the forum or to other members.

      What this means is you are now responsible for your own future on this forum. The Moderating Team will not keep asking you to stop and being ignored. Learn to let things go and learn to moderate yourself before posting; if you end up banned it will be your own fault. Personal attacks and include attacks on one’s race, age, religious creed, color, gender, national origin, physical, mental or visual disability, medical condition, ancestry, marital and military status, pregnancy or sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression and general physical appearance/looks. Depending on the nature of the personal attack there will be corrective action up and including permanent banning. If you have any inquiries about your warning percentage, feel free to PM a mod for an answer. If you need any clarification on the rules, feel free to reach out to The Moderating Team.

    It was AMAZING! She cried during What About. I LIVED for her performing GTIG. And there was nothing but love in the air even with people I didn’t know. When the Again instrumental came on everybody in the front was singing and some broke out into tears. It was beautiful. I will say though that logistically, it was a HOT mess trying to get in. I made it in time but the lines were unorganized and i walked half a mile away to get into a shorter line. I made it just in time for her to start, but it took a lot of people a lot of time to get in. I don’t put that on Janet but on the venue. It’s been eight years since I’ve been to the Hollywood Bowl and they need to figure it out because it’s was like that when I saw Maxwell. Janet was just PHENOMENAL. She is everything. #lifereceived

    For once, and I know this may be hard for you, but STFU. You didn't like her, we get it, but at the very least, show some respect or get out. It's the same bullshit you did with Michael and it's the same stupid bullshit you did with Amy Winehouse. Just STFU before you make me do something I may or may not regret. But to be frank, I don't have much tolerance for your antagonism right now.

    Honestly??? The Body That Loves You took me tf out. I was NOT expecting that. That is my song. Elevator jam. The crowd was so fucking dead. I was the only one standing in my section. The aunties surrounding me were SHOOK that I knew every song and all the lyrics DSFGHJFDSFGHJGFDGHJKL; "Janet needs to hire you!!" Girl. Black Eagle was the funniest. My stan circle friends know that is my song. So when it came on, Of COURSE know one knew it. Y'all know how ambient the song is. Imagine a dead quiet ass arena and my gay ass yelling "ONCE YOU KNOW, YOU CAN'T NOT KNOW YASSSSS" Everyone in the sections surrounding me had to do a double take aSDFGHDSADFGH. I was living and they couldn't take. The setlist made it clear. This is strictly for the fans. and thats not even some stan copout. She dgaf about how the tour does as far as sales. She doing this for us and I'm very glad she upped the production and catered the whole show to us! The tour book is pretty nice too. Last minute ofc, but some great bts pics and proof that she is recording again (with JJ&TL). I kinda wanna go again. I really wish I was with the other fans on the floor but y'all like 10 years older than me and have salaries so never happening. But I was the only one lit in my vicinity! But BLESSED to FINALLY see her live. I am so happy! S/o to Groupon!!!

    Hey guys! I've been working on this Unbreakable Tour montage for a while now, since the tour wrapped in Japan. I wasn't going to share it online, except with a few friends cause I was afraid people see it the wrong way, but after all those cancellations and postponements, I decided to. I like collecting stuff from my favorite artists and it includes bootlegs and unofficial fan-made dvds (whenever there is not an official one, and even when it does, It's always cool to watch different shows). I'm NOT a professional video editor, but I did the best I could. I used a lot of different videos from a lot of shows and the audio that's in the back came from a full recording of the Hawaii dates that concert 808 uploaded to YouTube awhile back. All the videos sources are listed on the credits at the end of the video, if your video is on this montage but your name is not on the list, YouTube probably removed it during that witch hunt before I took notes of your channel, sorry :/ That's it... I hope you all understand I'm not trying to take an advantage from Janet of her 'intelectual property', this is only a fan-made bootleg and NOT FOR SALE. Just a glimpse of what the Unbreakable World Tour was and I really hope you enjoy it and have fun watching! I'm also sharing two DVD covers I designed for it. Thanks to our friend Rich Esteban for the AMAZING photos he took from the Hawaii show DOWNLOAD LINK: https://mega.nz/#F!wwBAAToY!_m5Mt4FwF7KVKbTs7SVU6A

    To me, it sounds like she herself may be carrying the baby but I could be wrong. If she is, I really don't think it's anyone's place to dictate what her physical state should be while pregnant and if she can perform or not. Personally, as a woman who has never been pregnant, I find that very off putting. Speculate the other stuff but don't get into critiquing a woman's body like that, please.

    Some bitch named Janet answers. Me: I would like to requestJanet'snew song Damn Baby. Janet: What do you think about Janet getting pregnat at 50? Me: 49 Janet: Are you a Janet fan? She's great, but she's been a mess in the past. Me: Bitch I'm calling to request Janet's new song. Of course I'm a fan. What are you, a Miley coochie popping, tongue groupie? Play the goddamned song and don't ever shade Janet to me. I'm one of those crazy fans that will hurt you. Janet: Whoa chick, you sure are feisty (stupid laugh) Damn Baby it is, you got it. Me: If I don't hear it within the hour, I'm goin to call you to death. Janet: We'll play it as soon as possible. Still haven't heard it. *dialing again*

    It's literally Jimmy trying to single handedly give this era life. God bless him.

    To be honest, that's a concern I have too, like this happened so quick and quietly (same for MJ).....Im saying, when she cancels anything for health concerns, I'm not not doubting it and making fun of it because she's my fave, I am because YOU DON'T NOW, it can be so over for her so fast, while people fighting over petty shit, newsflash when the time comes, we're gonna get a whole lot of shit that frankly I'd rather keep waiting for than to go through what I went through with MJ & Whitney and what I'm going through right now with Prince. I so heavily value that she is alive and well. Life's too serious to be tripping over the materials really. We REALLY don't know how long we'll have her, or how long we'll be here our damn selves.

    See this is what irks me, ans why I like Janet to keep her personal life private, and also why I don't give a shit about interviews. People are already speculating about the child's last name, religious status, and trying to dictate what Janet should do. If she wants to take the risk of natural birth, then so be it. She's a grown ass woman, she's not stupid, and has the means to do so. I actually prefer for Janet to forget about the damned tour, and be happy with her family. If she decides to continue with her tour, good for her. (I will not buy another ticket). If she retires, which I believe she will, I will be ok with that also. This is a child we're talking about. This changes everything. Her child comes first.

    I'm saddened by the covert and at times overt Islamophobia. Let her live. She doesn't have to live in the image of her fans. She just has to live in her own truth.

    The Janet talk starts around 14:00 in the video. Essentially a summary of what Jimmy Jam talks about for those of you who don't want to listen or don't have time to listen to the interview: - He says Janet is his and Terry's muse and he can't think about Janet without having a song pop into his head - His favorite Janet song is "That's The Way Love Goes" and talks about the writing process with Janet (he's mentioned this story before) - And his other favorite Janet songs are "Lonely", "Empty", and "No Sleeep" - He says obviously working with Janet is different than working with other artists because they've worked on albums vs. others where him & Terry might just work on a song or songs - He plans to go to multiple tour dates on the State of The World Tour like he did on the Unbreakable Tour. - He says since he has known Janet for over 30 years he knows even if they have short exchanges when they communicate him and Janet appreciate/enjoy being around each other. - He says they are in the brainstorming stage of the tour (obviously wasn't going to go in detail about what changes are going to be made/not made) - He says he feels like one of the "Luckiest Uncles in The World" because he is always getting a Facetime around 2:00 am his time from Janet and she always has Eissa in her lap. -He says Eissa is "the most beautiful baby he has seen in his life" and Eissa is always happy. And says Janet is also giddy and happy with Eissa. He says it is inspirational to see that there is a whole new added element/a whole other meaning to Janet now that she is a parent. - He mentions George Michael and recording the song "Monkey" and how George wanted it to have elements in terms of sound of the Cool Summer Mixes of Janet's "Nasty" and "Diamonds". And says Janet & George were fans of each other's music. - He says to his knowledge there isn't a Janet & George Michael song even though there have been rumors of one. - He said that he thinks Janet and him did see George in concert. And that he and Janet like seeing concerts together and mentions how they saw J.Cole back in 2015 in LA and how Jimmy hooked Janet up with Bruno Mars tickets overseas recently. He says Janet likes seeing other's works because as he says "Inspiration breeds Inspiration"

    Yall are taking way too much time to put this up “We thank God for our blessing,” says the star. After Jackson announced in April she was postponing her Unbreakable World Tour in May to focus on “planning” a family with her husband Wissam Al Mana, sources confirmed to PEOPLE the star was expecting her first child. Over the last few months, Jackson has kept a low profile and was last spotted shopping for baby buys at London’s Back in Action furniture store. “She is super excited about her pregnancy and is doing extremely well,” a source close to the Jackson family previously told PEOPLE. “She actually feels very good about everything.” http://celebritybabies.people.com/2016/10/12/janet-jackson-baby-bump-photo-pregnancy-announcement/?xid=socialflow_twitter_peoplemag ----------- She looks amazing Her bresteces are HUGE

    Janet fans did not start this. We are not that strong in numbers to drag a person so hard Billboard writes an article about it and JT trended into the next day. The point of the speech went over his head. It has nothing to do with the music he makes. It is about him trying to piggy back off a movement when he does not have the fortitude or interest in being apart of it while using black culture to make him rich. Social Media was not around for Colin Powell in 2004. Many people wrote and emailed the FCC though but we couldn't see the other emails sent like we can see comments on twitter in 2016. Bottomline he should not have said anything. Jesse Williams was calling black America to action and JT is not going to do anything to ruin his precious little career so again what is he inspired to do. If he had to choose fighting for a cause or his career he is going to keep that career. So his tweet was bullshit and him clapping back was even more bullshit.

    i had some free time today and decided to put together a few videos i could find online of the intro, burnitup and nasty from the unbreakable tour... check it out.. let me know if you would be down to watch a full show version of this... NO.. this is NOT any type of final version... simply a "multi-cam" edit i did and wanted to see what folks' reaction would be.. if it's positive enough, i'll work towards having a completed show edit... anyways, enjoy! (hopefully)

    Surviving Planet Janet 101 It has been brought to my attention by The Management that things have been getting out of order 'round hurr, which is a lot considering the zoo this place is. Folks getting dragged and read worse than ever. Piepie showing off her goodies. Hotboy being celibate. Angie being online more. This place has been like the twilight zone. And I'm here for Technicolor. There's gonna be some new girls joining soon ( ) so the survival tips need to be laid out: 1. Remember Who You're Here For This is Planet JANET. She is the ONLY bitch that matters here. Angie's Blood/Crip/MS-13 boyfriends work long hours to keep this board going. Respect her and that. It is very much so okay to stan for other artists - TOF also stans for a medical mystery, Hotboy stans for a Legend, and DJ-Y2K stans for a non singing billy goat. But remember, you are here for Janet. There's no need to shade Janet to defend whatever flop you stan for. Doing so will get you called out and/or dragged. Example 1: Example 2: 2. Forum Buddies Are Essential Forum allies not only greater your chances of survival, but also build your popularity. Whenever you're pressed about Beysus involved in a debate, argument, fight, etc, you can always count on your forum buddy to see eye-to-eye with you and understand your point of view. Count on your forum buddy to agree with your posts, laugh at your gifs, chat about the size of Angie's rack, etc. Everyone on the forum will associate you two as Laverne & Shirley, and thus your popularity grows. Example of forum buddies - Hotboy & Lexi, Blatin & SloLove, Hotboy & DJ-Y2K (notice how Hotboy gets passed around ) Example 2 - 3. Don't Be Late When you see a thread that's on the second, third, or twenty-second page, don't rehash it. The thread is over. No one cares about your fucking opinion. Being late also refers to posting news late, or just making pointless threads. Be sure to browse the first page of either the Janet section or the Beyonce section Free Xone section before making a thread. It avoids cluttering up the pages, and forumers using it as a reason to belittle you. If it's not an official thread for another artist or a Janet thread, just don't bother. Example 1 - Example 2 - Example 3 - 4. Don't Be Pressed That's a lovely picture of DejaVU. This goes back to having a forum buddy. When you're a one man band, you can't just try your puss with any and everyone. Being pressed is a sign of weakness, and it is only the catalyst for your forum enemies you make you even more pressed. Simple comments that are directed towards the pressed is only bait for you to become more pressed. It is only okay to be pressed when it comes to Janet debates and miscellaneous debates about politics, society, etc. Example 1 - 5. You Don't Have Any Leverage With The Admin/Mods The mods don't like you. Get over it. No matter how many times you PM them your nudes or rocks you sell. In order for the mods to be fair to everyone (yes, even Xternal), they can not show any favoritism towards anyone. That's just the way love goes. However, this does not rule constantly asking, nagging, demanding (only if you're Nuk cuz he's sassy ), or begging. The Church of Janhova's Witnesses is still collecting an offering to cover the medical bills for when Angie needed a triple bypass after a certain someone (we all know who) PMed her their nudes. Example 1 - 6. Yes, Stupid People Exists In The Cyber World There comes a time in every forumer's e-life that they realize ppl in the e-world are just plain stupid. I don't believe people are stupid, but a series of stupid comments, leads to a person being stupid. No one is REALLY stupid, it's the things they say that make other's question their IQ, high school diploma (if they have one), or their up bringing. Everyone is different yes, but there's no reason for some of the foolishness posted. If it sounds stupid in your head, it's gonna gonna sound worse when posted. Think your comments, positions, opinions, etc through before you post them. Arguing with lesser girls has its pros and cons - it makes YOU look smarter, the con is that it's nothing but time wasted (and gives you a headache). The best thing you can do is direct them to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YNrzbSd5N6E. Example 1 - 7. Mix And Mingle Planet Janet is your only other option to be anti-Janet-Xone. Now that KETA is back, we no longer have to go there for news. She can just steal jack it from J|X and post it here. You are going to be here with us for X amount of days. Janet has brought us here. And you will be here for X amount of days. So you might as well get to know the ppl, and enjoy your time here. Know who is the forum clown, the forum brain, the forum idiot, the fun drunk, the forumer that does too much, etc. Example 1 - 8. No One Is Forcing You To Read The Threads Last time I checked, not nann one of ya'll has a gun pointed to your head forcing you to read the threads. When you log on to PJ, and you see an 8 page thread about something, DON'T ACT DUMB. You've been a member of JJ.net Inc. long enough to know that an 8 page thread means there's an argument going on, someone's fighting, mindless off-topic chit-chatter, etc. If you want to avoid a headache, don't click in the thread. If you do, THERE'S A REASON WHY YOUR COMPUTER COMES EQUIPPED WITH A "SCROLL" KEY. Don't come in threads talking about how tired of it you are. You've been tired of it for 6 years. I ain't got time. Example 1 - 9. Know What To Expect This board is full of butch lesbians, transgenders, ThatOtherFan, and stunt queens. You should know what topics to expect. There are going to be threads about sex, because heeeellllooooo it's a Janet board. TwistedElegance™ likes to talk about music. Dayz, she likes to talk about men and relationships. Cowboi and DownAznBoi like to talk about random stuff like ppl who mud wrestle with random animals for grocery money. Roc likes to talk about sexually explicit things that we would otherwise find unacceptable. And you can never be too sure with Nuk. Don't complain when you see their threads pop up from time to time. Either discuss, or don't bother with the thread. 10. We Know What You're Talking About On average, there's a thread made once every hour on here. Some threads are short and right to the point, some are long and drawn out. When someone posts a long article, or a series of pictures, you don't need to quote the entire post. It's annoying. Just respond regularly. We'll know what you're responding to. Quoting long posts makes pages longer than they need to be. If you want to respond to a certain part, it doesn't take long to edit out the excess text to get to the part you want to respond to. Example 1 - Example 2 - 11. Use The Good Old Noggin' Many say "this is just a forum", but that's the common cop out idiots use to avoid having to think. This is a message board that is broadcast to the world, and you don't want to look like an idiot in front of 6 billion+ people. This is your chance to either look educated or like a jackass. As you post on the board, think about what you're saying and how you're saying it. Sometimes your "bluntness" can come across as rude or offensive. Make sure what you're saying is well thought out and not just mindless jibber-jabber. There's a "Preview Post" button there for a reason. Use it. Example 1: Example 2: Example 3: 12. Have Fun.

    Someone tweeted her, "Being gay isn't a choice; but being 25, illiterate, and fucking a married man & having his baby is." I died right then and there.

    Didn't this illiterate hippo get pregnant out of wedlock and fornicate with someone else's man and then try and commit suicide? Maybe she needs to have someone read some other parts of the bible to her.

    What a night, what an extraordinary night; up-close and personal, literally. Let me start off by saying that to see Janet at a venue such as the Opera House is truly a privilege, especially for this being my very first Janet concert. I've been to hundreds of shows in various venues over the years and the Opera House is in its own league. You couldn't ask for a better venue to experience someone of Janet's magnitude and status. The crowd was unbelievable. I've never seen such a happy and enthusiastic crowd in all my concert going years. They played 'Moves Like Jagger' prior to the show and just like the video that was posted here the crowd practically blew the roof off again. I've never experienced something like that before. The atmosphere was truly electrifying and insane. It's also great to see that Janet's Sydney fan-base is truly a mixed bag - almost every demographic was present tonight. But the majority of attendees were in their 20s/30s and early 40s. Once the show got underway I couldn't believe my eyes; there she was in all her beautiful glory. She is tiny in person and stunning beyond words. She was on fire tonight, didn't miss a step and had the crowd in the palm of her hand. She clearly loves Sydney and Sydney loves her. The ballad medley was beautiful. The crowd was so quiet during her set, you could hear a pin drop. 'Nothing' is truly special live. Once 'Come Back To Me' kicked in, the crowd went wild. And 'Again' brought an even bigger reaction. Even though it was a seated concert, everyone was on their feet practically the entire time. 'Together Again' was a wonderful moment, especially when she finished it and said, "Justice was good today, y'all" and then proceeded to raise her hand in the air. Once the show finished, I knew I had to stick around and see if I could see Janet leaving the venue. I had a hunch. And sure enough, that hunch became a reality. I was expecting to see her car and maybe a glimpse of her through the window. After 30 minutes of waiting, her car slowly left the undercover garage and there it happened; she rolled down the window and proceeded to stick half her body out the window! I was a foot away. She touched my hand, thanked us and said she loved us. She did this for a few minutes and her videographer was filming it all. She is absolutely beautiful in person. She looks like a doll - so youthful and there is a glow to her. Pictures and screens do not do her justice at all. Seeing her this close will forever be etched in my memory. At this point it started to get crazy and people were beginning to act like fools by brushing up to her car and security began to intervene. She then got inside, rolled up the window, waved one last time and slowly exited the complex. As I was leaving I had to stop for a second because I couldn't comprehend what had actually happened. I said to myself, "I saw Janet". but it didn't sink in until a few minutes later. It still feels very surreal and almost like a dream. I'm on such a high right now. I think it'll be a very long time before I come down. Anyway, sorry for rambling on.

    Game's record of being wrong is revealing itself to be at an all time high. I love it.

    When Janet worked with other producers, we got 20YO and Discipline. Ya'll want that again? The only good to come out of that were RWU, FB, and Luv. There's a reason why the second half of 20YO sounds better than the first. The trio (J-J-T) did a great job of updating Janet's sound, but keeping in time with classic Janet from structure to content. Some of the tracks on this album can stand next to her old material, namely DB, BE, AYF, GBA, and UB.

    Think of your favorite pop song (not by Janet). Now think of the song structure and the parts that make it great. Nice melody? Simple lyrics? Typical song structure. Now let's get to Doesn't Really Matter by Janet Jackson and have your mind blown on what a pop song is supposed to sound like. (excuse any typos it is 5 am lololol) Background Now lets give DRM some context because it's important. The new millennium is approaching and so is a new sound in pop music. Janet is coming off her most introspective album to date which left a heavy cloud over the Janet brand. The Velvet Rope is full of moody urban sounds and intense lyrical content in a sea full of happy-go-lucky teeny-bopper garbage and because of this the album suffered to sell as well as previous efforts. Janet has an amazing (?) opportunity to be in the sequel to the Nutty Professor. The perfect platform to launch her new uplifting pop sound! Janet goes to the producers to suggest she be apart of the soundtrack and OF COURSE they oblige! Now let's take a gander at the SOUND that is ruling radio rn: This Max Martin sound was a complete 180 sonically of what Janet was making on TVR. Queen had to step it up to ASSERT her dominance over these little kids. Now, Janet being the mf star she was could have went to Max Martin herself for an easy Bonafide hit. Nah. Janet is a Loyal Taurean Queen. She enlists her longtime collaborators Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis to replicate this sound and show Max how it should be done. The Song Let's get into this shall we? I present to you, Doesn't Really Matter. As a faithful Janet listener in 1999, I'm sure this was a breath of fresh air when you heard it. Immediately, Janet's soft coos over the eastern asian elements (that would later define All For You) put you in a state of bliss. Now, I say this is a marvel of modern pop songwriting not because of subject matter. A person telling their lover that their appearance doesn't mean a thing; it's about theor inner beauty. It's simple. Borderline corny even? But it works. Let's breakdown the song structure. It seems pretty normal from the first minute or so. Intro - Verse - Pre-Chorus - Chorus... Post-Chorus? Now WAIT! What song you know has a post-chorus? Is that even a thing? The part of the song I'm referring to: Interesting. Perfect set-up for the second verse. Let's continue: 2nd Verse - Pre-Chorus - Chorus - Post-Chorus - Bridge (Yasssss) - Pre-Chorus - Chorus... Now this is where the modern pop song would end, but wait... Janet has more for us? *KEY CHANGE* Chorus... WAIT. Is this a new refrain??? It sure the fuck isssss! W O W. Mind blown! But why?? It came from a creative conflict during the early stages of the song. The melody was set, but Janet came up with the Doesn't Really Matter concept and refrain, while Jimmy came up with the Nutty Nutty Nutty my love for you. Janet loved the idea and incorporated it into the song as a second refrain. Genius. Finally, as our wig is in orbit from the songwriting miracle she just unleashed upon us, the song goes into a euphoric chant of lovestruck "Oh's" as a counter-melody tpo the refrain tro which she then stacks it under the final chorus of the song which leads us into the outro. "I'm Always doing that *chuckle*" she exclaims as the last strand of hair from our scalp is yanked off to the beat of the song's end. AND THAT'S JUST THE SONG STRUCTURE. As with ANY Janet x JJ&TL collaboration, the mix of background vocals, harmonies, sounds etc. really make the song. I really wish we had stems of this masterpiece so we could really dissect how intricate this song really is. For now, all we have is this fan mix of filtered vocals. Second best. Final Thoughts The lyrics, song structure, and intricate workings of the song all work in unison. These elements all mix to create the perfect mood. Euphoric, irresistible, and undeniable. The concept is simple but it's perfectly embellished. With so many factors at play, it would be easy for a song like this to sound noisy and all over the place, but under the direction of an artist like Janet, it sounds perfect. True genius! Janet shattered the Max Martin sound and showed she wasn't going to be some washed up diva who's last hit would be in the 90s. This was the perfect entrance into the new millennium for a woman who has such a sonically diverse catalog. Another notch on the belt. This small hit (3 weeks at #1 ain't too shabby?) set the stage for All For You to be the massive success it was. All of this Brilliance for a shitty soundtrack feature ? Only Janet. (and to think we didn't even touch on the iconic video??) Another chapter in the Genius of Janet Jackson!

    I love how we're pretending Dubai is some conservative place, like it's not a luxury destination that plenty of foreigners/Europeans do business and live. Y'all act like her moving there represents some moral failing. Also Wissam and Janet are rich so the same rules don't even apply to them if we're being honest. A black person is killed every 28 hours by the state in the United States yet it's somehow morally wrong for Janet to be in Dubai/the Middle East? lmao Also she clearly makes frequent trips to Europe and America. If you don't think Muslim Americans have faced hate crimes and attacks from the state(FBI informants of mosques) since 9/11 and that there isn't a hatred of Muslims then you're delusional. There are numerous examples of women in hijab facing attacks because they're visibly Muslim. How does her marriage effect our lives? The Great Forever was literally about y'all speculating on her marriage/religion. Stop turning a beautiful thing into something so ugly. Janet isn't and has never forced her religious beliefs on us. On this tour she's dancing singing songs like "If" while married to Wissam, has gay/trans employees so again don't create the truth you like. If I see any signs of abuse I'll be the first to drag Wissam but not because he's Muslim because anyone who doesn't appreciate Janet is an asshole. On a Janet forum there should be nothing but congratulations for Janet on planning a family not slander of her beliefs and husband. If she and Islam make you so uncomfortable find another fave like the one who practices Kabbalah despite not being Jewish and thinks it's edgy to dance in front of burning crosses with an extreme Jesus complex. *This will be my last post about religion in this thread*

    There's a part of me that's very anxious to see her but an even bigger part of me that's okay with it. Everything about this era just feels different. If this was years ago, I'd be really mad to have not seen her yet but I'm digging her whole approach this time around. It's like she evolved from doing what was expected and did her own thing and maybe because I'm going through my own mini-evolution and things are changing for me, I see it differently. Or it might just be because we're really the same person.
